Branding - 005

Hey, I'm MARJORIE, And I can't Wait to tell your Story

I’m a San Francisco Bay Area-based elopement photographer and content creator. I specialize in capturing the natural, candid moments between relaxed couples in stunning outdoor locations. I love taking my clients on an adventure to capture the intimate, spontaneous moments that truly showcase the depth of your relationship.

I am an introvert and an empath–a soft being with a deep desire to truly connect with everyone I meet. When others view my photos, I want them to feel the same warmth and spirit as I did standing there. Photos are truly a beautiful way to transport yourself back to nostalgic memories and reflect on your life’s journey. It is my honor to not only be a part of your journey, but to hold the great responsibility of documenting it.

I began my photography journey as the middle schooler who would always bring her point-and-shoot camera to school to capture “Kodak Moments.” In 2017, I reconnected with my camera to take photos of birds and landscapes, a true practice of patience and gratitude of the world around me. I have a particular fondness for long exposure photography. My landscape portfolio can be viewed and purchased here.

EMOTIVE. NOSTALGIC. PLAYFUl.

I believe that photography should capture not only what a moment looked like, but also what it felt like. That’s why I aim to create images that evoke a range of emotions, from joy and laughter to tenderness and intimacy. Above all, my style is focused on capturing genuine moments between my subjects, showcasing the depth of their relationship in a playful way. And when it comes to boldness, I’m not afraid to take creative risks and push the boundaries to create truly unforgettable images.

Fun Facts About Me

1. I have been a dancer since 2000. I’m trained in ballet, hip hop/urban, Hula, Tahitian, jazz, modern, musical theater… I’ve tried everything at least once! Don’t be surprised if I teach you some dance moves during our time together!

2. I am a boba fanatic and I will 100% say yes to a boba date with any of my clients. My go-to drink is a Jasmine Milk Tea, but if I’m feeling fruity I’ll go for a Peach-Lychee Green Tea. My favorite boba spot in San Francisco is Qualitea in the Castro!

3. Before I launched my photography career, I worked as an emergency medical technician (EMT) in a local emergency department. I maintain my CPR and First Aid certifications at all times, and take safety very seriously! Even when we’re hiking in remote places, you know I’ve got your back!

You’ll always find me traveling with my favorite blanket. I love being comfy above everything else!

My dance troupe recently traveled to Saint George, UT to compete in Hura Tahiti 2022.

I was born and raised in San Francisco! I do indeed consider myself a rarity–which means I really know the ins and out of my city!
